Mandrake-Win 98 home network.

Hello, I have two computers connected to each other:

Computer A with Mandrake 10 Official release . This computer is connected to the internet through cablemodem (eth0) and to computer B through a second Ethernet card (eth1).

Computer B with Windows 98. This computer is connected to computer A through an Ethernet card.

Objective: Computer A sharing Internet so computer B can access the web.

I have Samba installed on computer A. What should I do next?

In other words, How can I make this network work?

Please, any -detailed- help will be really appreciated.

Thank you very much.-

Samba is designed for you to access resources between them, but has nothing to do with Internet connection sharing. You should search for mandrake's network setup. If you have two ethernet cards, Mandrake knows that. If you find the correct setup, there must be some place where you can enable connection sharing. It shouldn't be difficult, I did it myself, times ago with Mdk 8.2.
Under redhat 8.0 it was "Kernel tuning". In my current suse, it's Firewall option. It changes from distro to distro.

Thanks Bruno for your help. I, finally, did it. It was easy. Networks, share internet connection, etc, etc.
